Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the possibilities are limited as you won't have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely using an FTP client too.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you need to enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
